This was me and my training partner Mori Junpei at Kurashiki Budokan, Okayama, Japan. We would train like this until Sensei had to close up the dojo and we had to go home...
It is this kind of Dedication, Determination, and Discipline that helped to shape me into who I am today. I miss my family in Japan. ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿฅ‹๐Ÿ˜”

Tape? Except for my wrists and my ankle. No tape on these fingers. Do this strengthening exercise 10 x 10 reps over 90 days before your next tournament and be surprised. NO LIE, REAL TINGZ
*Side Note: You see someone in the gym doing this. LEF DAT MAN ALONE๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฅ‹๐Ÿšจ

Training at Kurashiki Budokan in Okayama, Japan. Seen here is me using one of my favourite throws #hizaguruma ่†่ปŠ. Not the easiest throw to pull off, but when it is on. It is on. Enjoy ๐Ÿฅ‹๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

There are a lot of people who need the validation of others to feel self worth or value. And while there is nothing wrong with that; at the end of the day. It all comes back to perception of self. .
Every week everyone should spend some time building themselves up for the road ahead for you never know where it may lead you.
.
I say the following passage unto myself, โ€œThank the Most High that I am ME and there is no other as I am. Thank ME for always believing in ME when nobody else will. Thank ME for always having the strength to get up after being knocked down. Thank ME for never allowing the impossibilities of others to be my own. THANK ME FOR BEING THE BEST ME I CAN BE.โ€
.
I have competed on and off for the past 26 years in Judo. And unlike many of the judoka I see today with massive support and following. I never really had that. My mother and father had to work very hard; and even having the opportunity to do Judo has been the best part of my life. When everything in my life has gone wrong. Judo has always been right. Judo has been my place of solace. Judo has kept me safe. Judo gave me the chance to make friends all over the world. Judo has strengthened my mind, body, and spirit to a level that I can teach others how to be strong as well.
.
Now with Team Jamaica Judo in my sights. I will push myself harder than I ever have to show that I am worthy to hoist the Flag of the Land of my People. I will not give up. A long road ahead and I can not wait to see where this one takes me. .
Thank you all for your support. #jamaicajudo #training #judo #mma #bjj #motivation #fighter #fit #fight #grappling #fitness #workout #gymmotivation

#tbt A quick clip from last season.
When I am not training for Judo. I really enjoy golf. EXCELLENT STRESS RELIEF!!
Just as in Judo, a great deal of coordination is required to make the Ball sail in Golf. Focus, Technique, Finesse, and BIG POWER. And making all those things happen on every tee-off consistently comes with practice. 
How about you? What sports do you cross-train when you are not on your main?

When you have hit the bottom. Only then you can say that you have rebuilt yourself from the ground up. Back to training again. Goal: 80KG (Hold and Maintain)
